The CCT chairman ordered the withdrawal of the arrest warrant due to Onnoghen’s voluntary submission to the tribunal on Friday.
But he added that the order of arrest was withdrawn on the condition that the suspended CJN would continue to be present in court throughout the period of his trial.
The Nigerian Insider News earlier reported that the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen, was docked before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over allegations of non-declaration of assets.
He however pleaded not guilty to the charge and he was immediately granted bail on self-recognisance by the tribunal following a short oral application by the defence counsel, Chief Chris Uche (SAN).
The trial was adjourned till March 11.
